Euro Downtrend Seems Clear - We Like Selling Strength

Euro Downtrend Seems Clear - We Like Selling Strength

EURUSD – Retail forex crowds have remained impressively short Euro against the US Dollar despite a sizeable EURUSD pullback. But the shift in positioning gives us clear contrarian signal for further declines.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: Our “Tidal Shift”/Momentum2 strategy went short EURUSD from last week at $1.3245 as crowds bought aggressively into sharp declines.

Short-term declines seem a bit overdone and we’ll probably need to allow for a short-term EURUSD bounce, but the substantial shift in sentiment leaves us in favor of selling Euro strength.
